Product Description

This Auriou 20mm (3/4") Allongee Gouge forms part of the Chris Pye Lettering Tools range. To view more tools from the range please follow this link.

These tools were designed by master carver Chris Pye and hand forged in the traditional way by Auriou Toolworks at Forge-de-Saint-Juery in France. 

The chisels are allongee chisels with a slim blade section. Allongee is a style of blade that splays from the shoulder: they are lighter to use, the corners are more available for cutting. The wider gouges are also allongee shaped.

Auriou woodcarving tools have been among Chris Pye's favourite tools since he began carving. Uniquely their blades are forged by beating out a blank of steel to length before hammering the cross-section profile. This creates a very resilient grain structure in the metal which, when hardened to Rockwell 58C, underpins their great edge-holding properties.

All tools have octagonal ash handles with brass ferrules.
